Arnall of Georgia Will Speak
At Opening Lecture Thursday

Gov. Ellis Arnall of Georgia, who
will open the 1946-47 Oratorical As-
sociation Lecture Course at 8:30 p.m.
Thursday, Oct. 17 in Hill Auditorium,
is America's youngest state governor
and a leading figure in Southern
political circles.
Native of Georgia
A native of the state of Georgia,
Arnall announced his intention of
becoming governor at the age of 12.
This early attraction to politics was
the result of two facts: his grand-
father was a member of the Alaba-
ma Legislature, and for a period
young Ellis worked as a page in the
Alabama House.
Arnall received his bachelors' de-
gree in 1928 from the University of
the South at" Sewanee, Tenn., ma-
joring in Greek. He then took his
legal training at the University of
Georgia, where he won high aca-
demic honors and served as presi-
dent of his class, his legal fraternity,
the inter - fraternity council, the
general student council and the cam-
pus Gridiron Club.
Entered Legislature
After two years as a "county-seat"
lawyer in his home town, he entered
the Georgia legislature, where he
served until 1937. He was then ap-
pointed assistant attorney general,
and in 1939 was elected attorney
general, in which position he became
famous for his prosecution of cer-
tain asphalt contractors and for
collecting damages for the state.
Arnall's popularity became state-
wide, and his campaign for cleaner
government in Georgia was a sure-
fire issue when he ran for governor
$375 Stolen from
'U' Golf Links Office
A sum of $375 was stolen from the
cash register at the offices of the
University golf course, the Ann Ar-
bor sheriff's office reported Wednes-
The money was the total receipts
received for Saturday and Sunday's
play on the course. Coach Bill Bar-
clay discovered the loss.

tween 11:30 and 1:30.

against Eugene Talmadge in 1942.
As governor, he was carried on a re-
form program which has been
hailed throughout the nation. He
is unable to succeed himself as gov-
ernor under the provisions of the
Georgia state constitution.

German PW's
Behaved Well,
Binger Reports
Says Problem Was
Getting Them To Work
German prisoners of war didn't
give as much trouble as American
prisoners in Germany, Dr. Norman
H. Binger, new member of the Ger-
man faculty said in an interview
Dr. Binger' served as supervisor
and instructor of German prisoners
in Papago Park near Phoenix, Ari-
zona from 1944 to 1946.
Asked about the prisoners' daily
routine, he - said the main job was
trying to get them to work. Groups
of the prisoners were sent all over
the state to dig irrigation ditches
and to pick cotton. They apparently
didn't relish their work, he said.
The prisoners had a full educa-
ton program, with classes under
American instructors and also under
qualified teachers among the pris-
oners. They were permitted to take
correspondence courses from any
school in the country. Most popular
classes, according to Dr. Binger,
were English and American history.
For recreation, the Germans had
the same facilities as our men in the
service. There were movies in the
camp, groups formed to give plays,
and organized athletics. Their fa-
vorite sport was soccer, which is
generally the most popular sport
in Europe, Dr. Binger said.
During the two years that Dr.
Binger was there, 40 or 50 prisoners
escaped, but all were brouglht back.
Most came voluntarily, he said.
Extension Service Offers
Educational Psychology
A course in Educational Psychol-
ogy will be offered beginning Tues-
day by the Extension Service in con-
junction with the School of Nursing.
The course, for which three hours
credit will be given, is open to all
students. It will be held from 7:30
to 9 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays
at University Hospital.

Men Wanted:
Can Anybody
Play a Cello?
"If you can play a cello, we'll take
you," Prof. Wayne Dunlap, newly
appointed director of the University
Orchestra, said in an interview yes-
Prof. Dunlap explained that he
hoped to raise the orchestra mem-
bership to 100 from the present 60
members. There are openings for all
eligible music and literary students,
who play any string instruments,
trumpets, tubas and percussion in-
struments, he said.
The orchestra meets daily at 3 p.m.
in Harris Hall. Although members
are not required to attend every re-
hearsal, Prof. Dunlap said that two
credit hours may be earned by regu-
lar atendance.
A former GI an dleader of an air
corps band, Prof. Dunlap worked
closely in England with Dr. Thor
Johnson, former director of the Uni-
versity Orchestra.

ing for underclassmen who did
not turn in upperclass seats will
be held at 3 p.m. today in the

lish and academic counselor who

Rushee Lists
For Pledging
Are Due Today
The students who registered for
rushing with the Interfraternity
Council are expected to obtain and'
submit the official fraternity pre-
ference lists today at the Dean of
Students' Office, Harry Jackson, IFC
president, announced.
The fraternities will have sent in
their lists by 9 a.m., today. Every
rushee desiring to pjedge a fraternity
must present the IPC registration re-
ceipt today at the Dean's Office, in
order to elect his choices, Jackson
The office will honor these bids
and acceptances according to their
respective positions on the lists. Both
parties will be notified of agreements
made over the, week-end; prospec-
tive pledges will report for pledge
ceremonies at 6 p.m., Monday, to the
fraternities named.
The rushing period closed yester-
day, and "a period of silence" will
be into effect until noon Monday. A
record of 970 was set for IFC regis-
tration this fall.

New Antibiotic * * *
A Russian scientist, Dr. C. F. Gause
of the Institute of Tropical Medicine,
Moscow, has announced the discov-
ery of a new antibiotic similar to
penicillin in the American publica-
tion, Journal of Bacteriology. Owing
to its PH-sensitive pigmentation, the
neoteric extract has been termed
litmocidin. Like litmus, it changes
from blue to red in acid and back
again in alkali.
Litmocidin is extracted from an
organism which .occurs in the soil.
The organism, an actinomycete, is in
the same family as those which pro-
duce the amazing fin-de-siecle strep-
tomycin, another penicillin-like anti-
Apparently efficacious on cultures
of staphylococci, strept6cocci, tuber-
culosis bacteria and bholera germs,
litmocidin has only moderate action
against test tube growths of dysen-
tery germs and practically no effect
on typhoid bacilli. The substance
seems to be safe on mice but did not
cure staphylococci blood-poisoning as
African Expedition ...
A one-year expedition to Africa to
gather certain specimens desired by
the American Museum of Natural
History is under was, Yeaded by Hugo
Rutherford and accompanied by T.
D. Carter, Assistant Curator of the
Department of Mammals of the Mu-
seum. The expedition will travel by
supply truck from Capetown to Cairo
and will make numerous side trips
into the Kalahari Desert, Tangan-
yika, Kenya, Urganda, the Belgian
Congo, the Egyptian Sudan and the
Lybian Desert.
Extensive technicolor motion pic-
tures and photographic records of
African natives and wildlife will be
prepared for educational purposes
and courses in anthropology. The
foods and cookery, clothing, agricul-
ture, housing; hunting, trade, music,
dance and crafts of the various Afri-
can tribes will come before the color
cameras of the scientists.

V im Valley Project ...
Another expedition, currently en
route for Peru, is headed by Jun-
ius B. Birl, Assistant Curator of
Archaeology in the American Mu-
seum of Natural History: The ex-
plorers will search for evidence of
non-agricultural peoples who lived
some thousands of years ago in a

valley near Trujillo. Several scien-
tists from other institutions are co-
operating in the Viru Valley Project
of the Institute of Andean Research.
This is the first time that a con-
certed effort has been underway to
discover the full cultural history of a
Peruvian valley. The coordination of
geographical, archaeological and eth-
nosociological data should result in
the broad study of cultural change
and adaptation in one of the most
aboriginal culture centers of the
Western Hemisphere, according to
the American Museum's publication
Natural History.
Other archaeologists of the group
already in the field include Dr. Wil-
liam D. Strong of Columbia Univer-
sity, who is specializing on the chron-
ology of the available ceramics, and
Dr. Wendell C. Bennett of Yale Uni-
versity, who is making a study of the
architectural features of the ancient
adobe structures in the Viru Valley
Region. Dr. G. R. Wiley of the
Smithsonian Institution is compiling
a survey of modern land utilization
for an estimate of former popula-
Each specialist is to cover his own
section of the 20-mile valley and a
common field laboratory will be the
focal point for the interchange of
ideas as the work progresses. The
expedition will shortly be joined by
Dr. John J. W. Jobling, who plans to
study the mummified human re-
mains for possible traces of diseases.

Smokers' Relief ...
Authorities of the National Cancer
Institute have debunked the popular
magazine article which sensationally
announced that "tobacco causes
widespread, terrible forms of cancer."
The doctors advised that there is no
clinical evidence that tobacco smoke
is a factor in the cause ofcancer.
